Okay, so there's no clever show title this week. I just couldn't think of anything that could possibly sum up this show since we talked about all kinds of stuff. Join us as we answered some emails, cover a few things in the news, and listen to me whine a bit more about the weather. There is some interesting info, however, because the RCadvisor pops in and tells us a bit about how motor "cogging" may or may not affect a motor's performance.
Urs' SPIKE 3D (Coming soon!)
Urs' 50cc Hovering! (Hmmm...)

In this 131st installment of our show, Tim is back with a thorough report of the RCAE event that he attended last week. This is certainly an event that I am going to have to include in my schedule next year! In addition to our normal banter we include some news, a great tip on making those pesky Multi-Rotor power distribution harnesses, a cannon for retrieving airplanes from trees, and the RCadvisor is back again with another segment.
